Custody battle over felonious fowl found in California

OAKLAND, Calif -- There's a fierce custody battle over the felonious fowl that played chicken with commuters on the Bay Bridge Wednesday.

Three people claim to own the bird, now named Chip after the CHP officers who rescued her from rush hour traffic on the bridge.

Chip is hanging out at the Oakland Animal Shelter for now.

Officials are waiting for photographic proof from the bird's rightful owner before releasing her.
